Yes they really do. Not too long ago, they actually had Van Daniken. (How
do I know, you ask? Well obviously I watch some of the stuff-- even
fruitcake Egyptology is better than most of the nightly news, or other
available channels on my pathetic cable system-- etc.). Come to think of
it, I may be confusing Discovery with The Learning Channel-- both offer a
mixture of amusing weirdness and sometimes factual stuff...

No, but I can believe it. Actually, this list, and my conlang/conworld,
furnishes me with quite enough of that sort of stuff. And now that school
is obviously out, 80 msgs. between noon and 6PM; another 40 while I was
barely into the 80. It keeps one busy.
BTW you recently commented--
